ROCHESTER, N.Y. - With an estimated 15 million people expected to fly over the holidays, the Transportation Security Administration has some advice.

TSA officials will be at the Greater Rochester International Airport with some travel tips on Tuesday, including how to prepare for the security checkpoint.

The industry group Airlines for America estimates that about 15 million people will fly between Dec. 17 and Jan. 6. The group says planes will be fuller than last Christmas.

At the upstate New York airport Tuesday, the TSA says it will display some of the prohibited items that have been confiscated from passengers flying out of Rochester.
